Residents demand potable water

Staff Reporter

Officials fail to make temporary arrangements

Dharmapuri: More than200 residents of Vennampatti in Ilakiampatti panchayat resorted to a road blockade with empty pots here on Monday urging the panchayat authorities to take appropriate measures to supply potable water on a regular basis.

They alleged that officials had failed to make any temporary arrangements to the area, which was facing acute water shortage. Though repeated representations were made to officials concerned they had not initiated any action in this regard.

Due to lack of water supply residents had to traverse a long distance to get potable water.

Panchayat officials had earlier announced that they would supply water after assessing the situation. But water was still not supplied, they claimed.

With severe water scarcity surfacing in the area, the Ilakiampatti panchayat should take immediate steps to solve the problem they said.

Following assurances from police and revenue officials the residents withdrew their blockade.
